PC, PS4/5, Xbox One/Series.

Also on Game Pass day 1.

Publisher Kepler Interactive and A44, the developers of the well-received 2018 action-RPG Ashen, have announced their next project: Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn. It is an open-world action-RPG due out later this year for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (on both Steam and Epic Games Store). It will launch straight into Xbox Game Pass as well.

You'll combine guns and magic in Flintlock's combat, along with an AI-controlled magic-canine companion (who you can get a look at in the cinematic reveal trailer at the top of this page), in order to vanquish the undead hordes that threaten humanity.

As A44 describes the story, "The door to the Afterlife has been opened, allowing the old god’s army of the undead to escape from within. Join Nor Vanek, a member of the coalition army, and her mystical companion Enki, a strange creature gifted with magical powers, as they pursue their personal vendetta against the gods." You'll visit a number of bespoke locales, according to A44, including "desert sands, cavernous ruins and towering cities filled with secrets."

Awful character design, overly busy and in the dev diary the first words to describe her are "strong woman of color that is strong". When will western devs learn a thing or two from japanese devs about this?


When will western devs learn a thing or two from japanese devs about this?

huh? Well....their game isn't Japanese and from the looks of it not set in Japan and not some Anime or something so.......yea. So its not as if they don't know anime or that eastern design doesn't exist and need to um "learn" it, its that this game isn't about that.

Thats it.

That has nothing to do with learning shit, that is just a different opinion, thats like saying some shit like when "When will western devs learn a thing or two and make the main character a soccer player? Do those dumbasses not see how great that games looks? Fucking learn from that man, look at how much Fifa sells, guess they don't want money and don't know what sells and can't learn how to make cool calves" lol


World looks nice. Very happy that A44 changed the art style and character models as I wasn't a fan of Ashen at all. Still have to see an actual gameplay walkthrough before being in or out for the game.
